[First Impressions] Under the Moon [R18]

 photo 4fe41472d5eec310c2973257eb5dfb1f_zps4h3twg4h.jpg

Ah…I’m definitely playing too many stuff.

First of all, Under the Moon is a 18+ otome game so you’ll have some hentai scenes in it. I personally don’t mind hentai. So those that mind it, well, I don’t remember there being a version that skips sex scenes so I imagine this game won’t be something you’d like. XD
*coughs* Let’s get to business…

[Otome game reviews] HuniePop [5/10]

 photo 580798_zpsrequ4r7s.jpg

I know I’m going to get raised eyebrows for this post, but this game actually allows you to play as a girl and that means that besides being a gal game, it is also an otome game…This is for all of you yuri lovers out there !

First thing first, I’ll summarize it really quick. HuniePop is a +18 game developed and published by HuniePot (hahahaha, original). Funding for the game was raised via a successful Kickstarter campaign and the game was released on January 19, 2015. As for the story, there is not much to it, to say the truth; “you” got drunk at a bar, met Kyu, next morning “you” find out that Kyu is a love fairy that’s supposed to help poor sobs like “you” flirt and eventually sleep with ladies.

[GAME REVIEW] IDOLISH7

 photo IMG_1760_zpscni0j7r6.png

This is not really a review, as much as me wanting to introduce you to this game instead.lol I’m cheating.
IDOLISH7 is a iOS and Android rhythm, idol management and collectible cards game with characters designs sketched by the great shoujo manga author, Arina Tanemura. You take the role of Tsumugi Takanashi (default name, however you can change it to whatever you want), a manager for a new idol group called IDOLISH7. As the name suggests, you must train 7 singers and bring them to the 1st place as idols. The downside, though, is that the game is available only in Japanese and can only be downloaded through the Japanese Android or iOS stores (but there are methods to go around that which I can explain in a separate tutorial if anybody needs one).The game provides fully voiced story mode for whoever doesn’t feel confident in their kana reading (me included lol).

[REVIEW] Hakuouki – Demon of The Fleeting Blossom [PSP]

Photobucket

I’ll start by saying that it was pure hell to get my hands on a copy of this because of the time needed for Hakuouki to actually get imported and I don’t even want to mention how expensive the shipping fees were, but oh well, this game deserves it all, also for being one of the rare otome game/visual novels completely translated to English and the first OFFICIAL otome game exported to North America. It was released by Aksys Games, so God bless them for trying to bring otome games outside Asia. If you enjoy this series, please support Aksys Games and creators and BUY THE GAME. If request from the public is high we might just get ourselves other Japanese->English otomes (Aksys have already been very open to the western player’s opinions about what could work outside Asia). SO GO BUY NOW!
